How to format your references using the Austrian Studies citation style

This is a short guide how to format citations and the bibliography in a manuscript for Austrian Studies. For a complete guide how to prepare your manuscript refer to the journal's instructions to authors.

Using reference management software

Typically you don't format your citations and bibliography by hand. The easiest way is to use a reference manager:

PaperpileThe citation style is built in and you can choose it in Settings > Citation Style or Paperpile > Citation Style in Google Docs.
EndNoteFind the style here: output styles overview
Mendeley, Zotero, Papers, and othersThe style is either built in or you can download a CSL file that is supported by most references management programs.
BibTeXBibTeX syles are usually part of a LaTeX template. Check the instructions to authors if the publisher offers a LaTeX template for this journal.

Journal articles

Those examples are references to articles in scholarly journals and how they are supposed to appear in your bibliography.

Not all journals organize their published articles in volumes and issues, so these fields are optional. Some electronic journals do not provide a page range, but instead list an article identifier. In a case like this it's safe to use the article identifier instead of the page range.

A journal article with 1 author
Kolaja, Kyle, ‘Drug Discovery: Computer Model Predicts Side Effects’, Nature, 486.7403 (2012), 326–27
A journal article with 2 authors
Bonadonna, Francesco, and Gabrielle A. Nevitt, ‘Partner-Specific Odor Recognition in an Antarctic Seabird’, Science (New York, N.Y.), 306.5697 (2004), 835
A journal article with 3 authors
Labeit, Alexander, Frank Peinemann, and Abbi Kedir, ‘Cervical Cancer Screening Service Utilisation in UK’, Scientific Reports, 3 (2013), 2362
A journal article with 7 or more authors
Wang, Yujiao, Min Lv, Yingxin Zhang, Xieyue Xiao, Tianyi Jiang, Wen Zhang, and others, ‘Reconstruction of Lactate Utilization System in Pseudomonas Putida KT2440: A Novel Biocatalyst for l-2-Hydroxy-Carboxylate Production’, Scientific Reports, 4 (2014), 6939

Books and book chapters

Here are examples of references for authored and edited books as well as book chapters.

An authored book
Larose, Daniel T., Data Mining Methods and Models (Hoboken, NJ: John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2005)
An edited book
Chen, Huajun, Heng Ji, Le Sun, Haixun Wang, Tieyun Qian, and Tong Ruan, eds., Knowledge Graph and Semantic Computing: Semantic, Knowledge, and Linked Big Data: First China Conference, CCKS 2016, Beijing, China, September 19-22, 2016, Revised Selected Papers, Communications in Computer and Information Science (Singapore: Springer, 2016), dcl
A chapter in an edited book
Mcgee, Janet M., ‘An Observational Study of Teachers’ Affilliation and Control Behaviours towards Kindergarten Children’, in Interpersonal Relationships in Education: An Overview of Contemporary Research, ed. by Perry Den Brok, Jan van Tartwijk, and Jack Levy (Rotterdam: SensePublishers, 2012), pp. 67–83

Web sites

Sometimes references to web sites should appear directly in the text rather than in the bibliography. Refer to the Instructions to authors for Austrian Studies.

Blog post
Andrews, Robin, ‘Bacteria Are Evolving To Eat The Plastic We Dump Into The Oceans’, IFLScience (IFLScience, 2017) <https://www.iflscience.com/environment/bacteria-evolving-eat-plastic-dump-into-oceans/> [accessed 30 October 2018]

Reports

This example shows the general structure used for government reports, technical reports, and scientific reports. If you can't locate the report number then it might be better to cite the report as a book. For reports it is usually not individual people that are credited as authors, but a governmental department or agency like "U. S. Food and Drug Administration" or "National Cancer Institute".

Government report
Government Accountability Office, Metropolitan Area Acquisition (MAA) Implementation Issues (Washington, DC: U.S. Government Printing Office, 27 July 2001)

Theses and dissertations

Theses including Ph.D. dissertations, Master's theses or Bachelor theses follow the basic format outlined below.

Doctoral dissertation
Rodriguez, Rafael M., ‘Experimental Evaluation of Cooling Effectiveness and Water Conservation in a Poultry House Using Flow Blurring Atomizers’ (unpublished Doctoral dissertation, University of South Florida, 2017)

News paper articles

Unlike scholarly journals, news papers do not usually have a volume and issue number. Instead, the full date and page number is required for a correct reference.

New York Times article
Hollander, Sophia, ‘Fame on the Half Shell’, New York Times, 3 May 2009, p. CY1

In-text citations

References should be cited in the text by name and year in parentheses:

This sentence cites one reference Kyle Kolaja, ‘Drug Discovery: Computer Model Predicts Side Effects’, Nature, 486.7403 (2012), 326–27..
This sentence cites two references Kyle Kolaja, ‘Drug Discovery: Computer Model Predicts Side Effects’, Nature, 486.7403 (2012), 326–27; Francesco Bonadonna and Gabrielle A. Nevitt, ‘Partner-Specific Odor Recognition in an Antarctic Seabird’, Science (New York, N.Y.), 306.5697 (2004), 835 <https://doi.org/10.1126/science.1103001>..

Here are examples of in-text citations with multiple authors:

  • Two authors:
  • Three authors:
  • 4 or more authors: Yujiao Wang and others, ‘Reconstruction of Lactate Utilization System in Pseudomonas Putida KT2440: A Novel Biocatalyst for l-2-Hydroxy-Carboxylate Production’, Scientific Reports, 4 (2014), 6939 <https://doi.org/10.1038/srep06939>.
